For Parents, Educators and others who take care of kids:
Aside from being a fun song to sing and dance to, Growth Spurt Grumpies is meant to be used as an educational tool. We all go through our grumpy moments and days, especially as we're learning new things, and sometimes the feelings of anger and discomfort get so big that we can find ourselves overwhelmed and tempted to lash out. Growth Spurt Grumpies can bring up the conversation about grumpiness/anger and what we can do for ourselves and each other when we're in the throes of it. It helps us label and hold the experience, allowing us to honor it as a normal part of being human. And, of course, we can sing and dance and scream along with the song to fully embody the feelings (and find some humor in it all).

Growth Spurt Grumpies puts a smile on my face
What a delight it is to be both entertained and reminded that there's space for grumpiness in the face of life's challenges. Heidi Siegell's rich voice and musical background make Growth Spurt Grumpies a pleasure to listen to and I look forward to the release of more such recordings for children and the child that continues to want to be heard and attended to in all of us.

Graceful Mix of Emotion and Passion
Heidi's passionate voice delivers a graceful and entertaining melody. This song appeals to kids all ages. Thank you Heidi!

Fun For Grown Ups Too!
Found myself rompin' around the room with my little one to this, indulging the grumpy little boy in me. Oh, and my daughter loved it too! Beautifully sung by Heidi, and the piano is killer. Mostly it's just pure fun (for kids of all sizes!) Keep it coming!!!!!

Alice Kaltman, LCSW

Fantastic song about a difficult phase!
Heidi Siegell's Growth Spurt Grumpies is a wonderfully funny, and on-target song about a difficult developmental stage all kids (and parents) must endure at least once in their lifetimes. I highly recommend it, and the rest of the Tiny World collection to all parents who want great, original music for themselves and their kids to share and enjoy together.

Rob Paterson

Awesome Kids Song
I love this! I really hope Heidi continues releasing more songs, and eventually a whole album! Every parent should own this, not only to play and dance along to with their little ones, but for a few adult laughs as well. It's playful, fun and humorous all multiple levels. I can imagine a whole musical built around Heidi's songs! That would be awesome.

Groovin' to the Grumpies
My girls and I love jumping and dancing around the apartment to this track. What a great way to both acknowledge and work through all our grumpies!
